Theatre as a tool for empathic understanding
MaD Talks are the Hong Kong equivalent of TED talks (MaD=Making a Difference)
Hjalmar, a community-based theatre activist, presented at MaD 2012. Although in this talk he speaks principally of Forum Theatre – another form of participatory theatre with similarities and differences to Playback Theatre – the work that AHRRDO (Afghanistan Human Rights and Democracy Organization) does in Kabul, most certainly involves Playback. In fact a lot of their transformational work in the field of Transitional Justice particularly, is most effectively done with Playback Theatre. What he says here about Community-based theatre and EMPATHY applies to both Forum as well as Playback. Good man!
